Infographic - 20 Phrases You Might Not Know that Were Found in Books

Hello, everyone! Today's infogram features 20 quite common phrases, as well as the piece of literature (or generally book) that were first found. I have to admit that some of their origins came as a surprise to me. I also tried not to include more than one phrase that originated from William Shakespeare's plays, which turned out to be a challenging decision. Enjoy!

Which is your favourite phrase?

    1. Yes! They are phrases that we all use very often, and yet I never knew that they were so so old :)
